It "Owl" Matches

I love the idea of coordinating gift wrap, cards, envelopes, tags, etc. I recently attended a baby shower and got a fun chance to try out some ideas that I had been floating around.

The inspiration/one of the gifts:

Here's the card front with a punch art owl. I learned the technique from this awesome video tutorial

Here's the card inside with the owl stamp from the "It's the Thought" Hostess Set in the current Summer Mini Catalog.

And here is how I wrapped the present.

I made the onesie using circle punches for the punch art and the owl from the "Forest Friends" set (item#113748). My mat pack and paper piercer (items#105826 & #116631) along with a Stampin' Write marker helped to create the faux stitching along the sleeves. Three eyelets along the bottom were attached with my Crop-A-Dile (item#108362) to represent snaps. I adhered the paper onesie to some retiring Close to Cocoa pattern paper and wrapped it around the onesie along with a matching tag.

Some Scotch tape and Costco wrapping paper held it all together.
